Carnival – any ideas? And other stories this week in Tenerife

Apoteosis del Carnaval, Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2013

Carnival – any ideas?
THIS year’s Santa Cruz Carnival was universally judged to have been one of the best in recent years. So organisers are keen to maintain the standard for 2017. However, they need help. Since 1987 the Carnival in Santa Cruz has always had a theme – and the next one could be your idea!

XIV Feria del Libro de Adeje 2016
The annual Adeje Feria del Libro (book fair) will take place between 15 and 23 April in the car park of the Municipal School of Music and Dance in Las Torres. As always there will be a range of book stalls, events and exhibitions, and readings, all between 10am and 10pm. The particular focus this year will be Shakespeare and Cervantes, since it is the 400th anniversary of the death of both authors, who died within a fortnight of each other in 1616.

XXVII Feria del Libro Arona 2016
Arona Ayuntamiento’s Culture Department has announced its XXVII Feria del Libro Arona 2016. The book fair will be held over 14, 15 and 16 April in the Plaza del Pescador outside the Cultural Centre, starting at 7pm on the 14th. On Friday 15th it will open at 5pm, and on the Saturday, at 11am. As usual, there will be musical and theatrical performances, handicrafts workshops, and many other entertainments.

More Than a Vegetarian Restaurant, Review of Hay Lo Que Hay in Puerto de la Cruz
It’s not a posh place and the food isn’t fancy, but the whole dining experience is one of homely warmness. There’s a nice vibe even if you’re the only diners. Hay Lo Que Hay means ‘there is what there is’ and what there is, is delicious.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
